VALENCE USA was created in June 2000 to meet the highly specialized needs of the growing motor sports community with economical, high performance composite fabrication services. In 2001, Valence began to focus on Ducati motorcycles, working in association with its customers around the country to produce the finest carbon fiber bodywork available. November 2001 marked a shop expansion project, which increased production capacity four-fold, enabling Valence to increase its line of Ducati-related products while pursuing projects in other specialty markets as well. In May 2003, Valence moved into its new 8500 s.f. facility, installing updated molding and finishing equipment to make another leap in production capacity. The move coincided with Valence 's entry into the Ferrari aftermarket, with an extensive line of cosmetic and non-cosmetic carbon fiber interior trim, engine components, and bodywork. With its larger, upgraded facility, Valence is equipped to handle most cosmetic and structural composite projects using carbon fiber, Kevlar, fiberglass, ceramic and other specialty reinforcements in a variety of thermoset plastic matrices. Valence products feature autoclave and press molded construction with show-quality automotive and marine urethane finishes. From one-off prototypes to production levels in the thousands, Valence offers all if its customers outstanding quality, price and versatility.
Christopher Coffing founded Valence USA after earning a Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Virginia . Coffing learned and developed many of the advanced manufacturing techniques now employed by Valence while conducting research on advanced composite materials and their applications in motor sports. This research, made possible with a grant from the Lemelson Foundation, largely focused on the design and manufacture of high performance composite automobile wheels, where performance and style are equally important. Valence continues to emphasize both performance and style, and has the knowledge and experience to create consistently strong, safe, lightweight, and beautiful products.
